Eileen Flanagan at Valley Green

I have a vision, and I hope you will join me in working to make it a reality. My vision is that the crises of the world today—blatant hate, extreme inequality, and climate change—will motivate people to work across our divisions to heal them and create new economic systems that are more just, sustainable, and loving. Working toward this vision is at the heart of my writing, my leadership in Earth Quaker Action Team, my public speaking, and my online teaching.

Renewable 9781631529689_FullCover 3Nov14.indd  After twenty years of being a writer, these are the two works I’m most proud of. Each received a Silver Nautilus Book Award, as well as other award recognitions and some pretty cool endorsements (The Dalai Lama and Bill McKibben respectively).

The Wisdom to Know the Difference is about how different people navigate the challenge of the Serenity Prayer, accepting the things we cannot change, and changing those we can.

Renewable is the story of the midlife crisis that led me to become a climate activist. It feels particularly relevant now as more people are feeling called into activism.
